There are plenty of ways that we can help ultimate grow, but one key way is to continue to push for the equal participation and recognition of women in the sport.

So I thought I'd share this article from Skyd magazine. It does two things really wonderfully: it explains what privilege is and how it applies to men in this sport; and it gives great specific examples of ways that elite (or not) male (or not) ultimate players can use their influence to address the existing imbalance -- specifically without resorting to appeals to guilt or chivalry, but simply by emphasizing this as a way to balance the current power dynamic and improve the game overall.
